BLOODY HELL.

And that is all I have to say about that.

I am seriously on the verge of spending huge gobs of money I don’t have to host the comic independently.  This is ridiculous.

(Well, that was almost all I had to say about that.)

  1. Reminds me of the time in high school when I got a test back and stupidly said “Wait, I couldn’t have scored this high, I didn’t even answer that many questions!” The teacher had accidentally doubled the score, which wasn’t actually good to begin with.

  2. What does one do when two (apparently) good students turn in programming assignments that are absolutely identical except for the comment header on the top?

    (I call them good students because until this time, they have both shown independent good work.)

    Discussion during writing of the code is allowed, not submitting the same code.

  3. Check the faculty policy – create a lot of paperwork for whoever has to deal with such things and rest assured that you have covered your ass (keep copies of such paperwork) and know that nothing will really be done about it.

    Would first be a good idea to check though that they have not both made the obvious changes to a class example.

  4. Nuttycat: They are probably cheating, and there’s probably no way you can prove it. Bang your head against the wall. It helps.

  5. Nuttycat: it depends, of course, on the nature of the assignment. It isn’t unthinkable that there’s only one (short) way to do it, and that they both adhered to the best practices that you taught them (regarding variable names and indentation) perfectly.
